Maybe I’m overworked and kinda stressed, but John McCain really effing pushed me over the edge today. I know I’m totally preaching to the choir on this one, but DUDE, I’M HATING YOU, BIGTIME. He and his actions are so TRANSPARENT and it’s driving me INSANE. After months of procrastination, I finally donated to Obama’s campaign today.

Canada (my home country) is also holding an election right now. I actually thought it somewhat charming that the Canadian Broadcasting Company reported on a rally regarding ARTS FUNDING today. Canada has its share of “Real Problems” and obviously I feel strongly about Arts funding (both my books benefitted from government grants). But a dearth of experimental films is slightly less terrifying than the prospect of Sarah Palin squaring off with Ahmadinejad, you know?

It blows my mind that Obama has not put the nail in the Republican coffin by now. Seriously, are we back to electing officials because they’d be more fun over brewskis? Didn’t we go over this already?

This is not the beginning of a long series of semi-coherent rants culminating in a mysterious disappearance on Nov 4. I promise.
